Not sure if we can guarantee that but we’re working on it

You need to work harder!

  1. Someone has found a way to create user accounts without going through the captcha/activation code cycle. I doubt this, since I think we’d be seeing 1000s of account creations per second (if it were me orchestrating this attack then that’s what I’d do). But, if this is the case, you need to take the site down now. Pull the network cable out of the wall. Flick the master power switch. Perhaps there’s a “Quit” command in a menu somewhere?
  2. Someone has written some form of botware/robot/gizmo/script/whatever that automates the process of going through the captcha/activation code cycle.
    Take the sign-up process stuff out (why it’s still there is a mystery). Stop sending activation codes.

I think that, within the 3 days this thread has been running, someone could have found the quit command.

have we forgotten the password to access the server?
